How to make Cannabutter

This is a simple and quick way to infuse cannabis into butter in the comfort of your kitchen. Be sure to use salted butter since it has a higher smoke point. The great thing about cannabutter is that it can be made relatively quickly and be substituted in just about every recipe.

Cooking time: 60 mins
6 servings (makes 1/2 cup of cannabutter)
Ingredients

1/4 ounce cannabis buds, finely ground

1/2 cup (one stick) salted butter

To make cannamargarine, simply substitute margarine for butter.
Equipment

1 x Grinder

1 x Medium Saucepan

1 x Wooden Ladle

1 x Spoon

1 x Metal Strainer

1 x Container (with a tight fitting lid)

Instructions:
1
Melt the butter on low heat in a medium saucepan.
2
Add the ground buds to the melted butter a little bit at a time, stirring in between.
3
Simmer on a low heat for 45mins, stirring frequently.
Tip
You should see small bubbles slowly forming on the surface.
4
Strain the butter into the container using the metal strainer to filter out the ground buds.
5
Press the spoon against the gound bud in the metal strainer to release all the cannabutter.

The Finished Result!

You can use the cannabutter immediately or store it in the refrigerator for later.

This recipe can easily scale up for larger batches of cannabutter. The general rule is that 1 pound of butter (4 sticks) can absorb 1 ounce of cannabis. For larger quantities we recommend that you simmer the butter for 60 minutes to get the maximum results!

Note: For medical patients, we recommend using 2 ounces of cannabis for each pound of butter, effectively doubling the strength of the cannabutter.

Raw cannabis contains a lot of THCA which is not psychoactive. When you smoke or vaporize marijuana, the cannabis is “decarbed” (decarboxylated) by the heat and becomes psychoactive. If you ingest cannabis, and want the full psychoactive effect, you need to first decarb your cannabis before you cook with it. Learn how to decarboxylate your weed
